Matt Damon and his Water.org charity are launching a water bottle campaign to help raise money for the 884 million people who are without access to clean, safe water. Damon says:"I think what resonates with me most is when you see people living without clean water and they're forced to scavenge for water and basically use up all of their time just doing that. You realize that they're in such a crippling cycle of poverty; it's just a death spin that they can't possibly get out of."

You realize that they're in such a crippling cycle of poverty; it's just a death spin that they can't possibly get out of."

Buy the reusable limited-edition CamelBak water bottles here. $10 from each purchase ($25 or $35 for bottles; free Amazon shipping) goes directly to the charity. When you drink out of it, you can feel cool and tell people you are drinking Damon Water. Or Bourne Water. Whatever your heart desires.
